Buffett performs in Havana, Cuba

Jimmy Buffett spent some time in Havana, Cuba a couple of weeks ago. He did an impromptu show outside a bar in Havana. It was just Jimmy, a guitar, and a mojito. Some marines were there for the show and shot the video (they were a little off beat on the salt, salt, salt).
